This is great and easy! I added some cinnamon and a few dashes of nutmeg and a bit of ground cloves w/ a bit of baking soda and vanilla to the sugar and margarine while it was melting and that just made it all the better-- not to mention it smells fantastic, especially in the fall :)

Chef1MOM | my other reviews | e-mail me ***** PAC recipe- let me tell you this is great stuff and much less money then store bought. As I am a pocorn fanatic as is DS this is the perfect recipe for the both of us. This will be a regular for our summer camp fare treats as well as our movie night snack. Thank you for a great money saver. ***I also made this with micro popcorn and then followed carmel recipe for a quick snack at the cottege and it was jsut as good if not better because I did not have to wait so long. :-) — Jun 3, 2006 edited to add: made again and YUMMY. I served it still warm and sticky fingers and all everyone was wild for this. I am going to try making this again and rolling into pocorn balls for my summer students as a treat. Thank you again for a fast,fun and easy recipe.
